Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Perfectly Posh in Pearls

Glancing Back

Happy Saturday, wonderful readers!  This morning, Ripley and I started our weekend the way we always do… reading the Fabulously Free in SL blog.  While I was admiring Loki’s sensuous photo here, Ripley insistently nosed the Group Gift Listing link in the corner of the Fab Free web page.  Of course, with my pooch’s gift for finding fashion, I immediately followed his lead and discovered not one, but two, new, free, fabulous gifts for Fab Free group members that, in my mind, coordinate with each other spectacularly.

With a few quick teleports and clicks, I became the proud new owner of Posh Tale’s free, elegant Margot gown and Tiffany Designsfree back necklace.   The opulent sheen of the double stranded pearls contrasts beautifully with the subtle shimmer of the floor length, formal gown.  From the front, the necklace appears to be a traditional pearl strand, but from behind, it drapes beautifully and emphasizes the line of your back.  I love the way the dress leaves my shoulders bare to feel the caress of the moonlight.  The gown includes a HUD that allows you to select one of 16 colors, and comes in 5 sizes for classic avatars.  Although there was no applier for mesh bodies, I was able to wear the gown just fine by adjusting the alpha on my Maitreya Lara body.  After adding simple pearl studs from Caroline’s jewelry, and slipping on some black heels (more on these shoes in my blog post coming tomorrow), I accompanied Ripley to the outdoor ballroom at the Invictus sim.

Perfectly Posh

While the night breeze ruffled Ripley’s fur, we wandered around the grounds of this beautifully decorated sim, which is inspired by the poem of the same name by William Ernest Henley.  It’s a Linden Endowment for the Arts exhibit and is well worth exploring.  I discovered the Invictus sim by reading this blog post by Ziki Questi.  It has more in depth information if you are interested, and is enjoyable to read.  Periodically, falling stars blazed a trail across the purple and mauve streaked sky while we walked around.  Legend has it that if you wish upon a shooting star, your wish will come true.  Here’s hoping that all your wishes come true this weekend.  Until tomorrow, happy shopping!

I’m Going Out Tonight

“You can stay in if you like, Lazypup… I’m going out!”

Hey there Fabulouses!  Poulet Koenkamp of Purplemoon Creations is spoiling her inworld group members again with another instore group hunt!  The Keep Calm & Give Me Candy Hunt 3 began on October 18th and runs until the end of the month.  There are 10 hidden mermaids in and round the sunken ship as well as Phillip to search for.  I was running short on time when I went down there to hunt and didn’t find them all yet, but I found a few, and totally plan to go back and find the rest!  If you aren’t a current member of the group, it’s just 50L to join and these hunt prizes are well worth that!

One of the prizes I picked up is the super sexy Alana Dress in a royal purple denim with gold stitching.  This dress comes in Maitreya, Belleza and Slink mesh body sizes as well as regular mesh sizing and fitmesh with the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that are on the system body.  Such a great prize, and I really must get back there soon for the other prizes, but first I wanted to tell you about these cute shoes before I do!

You can find these adorable  strapped 2016 Halloween edition shoes at Empire for just 1L.  These come with a texture change HUD that allows you to change plenty of little pieces on the shoes with a few different colours in time with the season, for example gold, orange, purple and green.  Even if bright colours aren’t your thing, you can make these all black – so they’ll be fantastic even after the bit day of bumps and jumps is over.  These are compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and TMP mesh feet.

Fields of Gold

Snapshot_001Good day Fabulous Readers!  Have you heard about The Good Gorean Hunt?  Full on gorean wear is not my usual fashion, but I do like to take little bits of fashion from different style categories and add them to my usual look for a change.  I really like how it turned out today!

When I heard that The Good Gorean Blog was celebrating five years and was hosting a free hunt, I checked out the hunt prizes and there are several items that I quite liked!  In my photos, I am wearing the Alethea Gown that I picked up at Posh Tales for The Good Gorean Hunt.   It comes with a texture change hud that allows for a ton of different colour options as well as you can wear or remove the cape.  This is a fitmesh creation and comes with an alpha layer if you need it, so it should fit on whatever body you are in whether it be system or one of the mesh bodies.

I also made a stop to Aisling and looked for the hidden “G” icon and was pleasantly surprised that it was a beautiful jewelry set called Alyse.  Alyse includes the necklace shown as well as a pair of matching earrings that are unfortunately hidden in my hair :/.  I promise they are just as lovely as the necklace and WAY worth the time it takes to find the hunt icon🙂.

Bubbling With Excitement Over Fabulous Gifts

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Today it was time for Ripley’s annual visit to the V-E-T.  He was due for his rabies shot and a few other nasty pokes, so on the way home, it was time for some shopping therapy.  Aren’t I a lucky girl to have a pooch who loves bargain-hunting as much as I do?  After the promise of “Ripley-snacks,” my hound with a nose for fashion quickly tracked down two Fabulous Finds that we’re “bubbling” with excitement to share with you.  Ripley didn’t have to search far…these goodies include two gifts for Fab Free Group members.

To join the FabFree Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .  There are so many wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free members, and the list is growing every day!

Bubbling With Excitement

For our first Fabulous Find, I slipped on the free, sleek Karmyn dress from #Bubbles.  With two curve-hugging silky mauve sides connected by a creamy, lacy panel, what’s not to love about this dress?  Its soft colors are sure to flatter any avatar.  A quick jaunt over to the Free Dove yielded my accessories which are a free gift set from Chop Zuey.  The purpley-pink tone of the center gem stone surrounded by gleaming diamonds perfectly echoed the color scheme of my dress.  With an application of subtle matte lipstick from Birth, Nefertiti eyeliner from Euphoric and Star Bliss nail polish from Livia (only 10L on The Marketplace – score team Ripley!), I’m all glamm’d up and ready to go!

Somewhere Between Love and Friendship

Of course, after a morning at the animal hospital and bargain hunting, Ripley was ready for some well-deserved R and R at the lovely “A Painter’s Link” sim. He brown-bagged his Ripley-snacks and I brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy underneath a shady maple tree. For this outing, I needed a more casual outfit, so I combined Candys Capris from Cartiera Designs with two of our other finds of the day: the strappy, pink spiked shoes from Living Vintage Couture (another Free Fab Free Group Gift) and SG Apparel’s Rhapsody Gypsy top. The fun, unusual shoes left my fresh French manicure from By Snow (0L on The Marketplace) free to sparkle in the dappled sunshine. My pink crop top coordinated perfectly with my shoes, but if pink is not your color, the top comes with a color-change HUD with several other options. This top is a featured item in this week’s Fifty5 Thursdays sales line up. The sale runs through Sunday, but some designers keep up the sale items up for an entire week. All in all, these separates combined to create a fun, playful outfit for our afternoon leisure time.

Right now, Ripley is snoozing away his active morning, but I’m sure he’ll wake up soon raring to seek out some more Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Until next time, happy shopping!

Let It Rain

If it simply MUST rain, you should atleast have a stylin umbrella to keep your look classy!  Janire Coba of Belle Epoque must have been thinking the same thing when she recently put out this cute animated Halloween Umbrella as a free group gift for the Belle Epoque inworld group.  Your umbrella will definitely be the one that stands out in the sea of solid brollies!

ps.  This has actually inspired me in RL lol.  I think this weekend I will go shopping and see if I can find a cute printed umbrella😉

It’s Spooktacular…

It's Spooktacular.... 2

Right now if you head to Swank events you can participate in the Spooktacular Goth Hunt (there’s a haunted house at the event to visit too). Loki and I hunted around and picked up the matching FREE lingerie set at the House of Ruby booth in Slink or Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Just go to the booth and look for the little black rose, buy it for 0L and unpack and you’re all set for a special evening.

I paired my lingerie set with the Fabulously Free Group Gift from Beloved Jewelry. This pretty gold and blue diamond drop necklace and earring set was a perfect touch to finalize my sexy look. It’s classic jewelry and would be lovely with any style of outfit. Think casual to gown to wedding… you wouldn’t have to wear lingerie of course.

Just join the Fabulously Free group in world by pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about in local and then clicking the link to join.

Teleport to Beloved Jewelry and pick up your FREE gift wearing your FabFree group tag.

It's Spooktacular...

As I mentioned before, Loki also stopped by Swank with me and picked up the hunt gift from House of Ruby. The men’s FREE gift is these glittery briefs in red which come in a Slink or Omega applier hud.

Loki paired his FREE briefs with an equally nice piece of FREE jewelry from Chop Zuey. Not long ago, he showed you one of the group gifts [HERE], but you can get the Gibraltar necklace in gold for FREE as a FREE to all gift for Fabfree members courtesy of Chop Zuey, no group required. As mentioned before, this necklace is resizeable, so though it is meant for men, it would make a nice ladies necklace too.

Whispering Secrets

Sharing Secrets Hello Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Today’s post is something fun and playful, at least I think so. Sanarae is celebrating an anniversary, and the shoppers are benefiting. Almost every vendor has a FREE gift to all Sanarae group members. While there are a ton of lovely gifts, the gift from Pixicat happens to be my personal favorite. Additionally I came across the cutest gacha by Katatonik. This adorably creepy pet makes for the perfect little friend to whisper all your secrets to.
A New Friend It’s no secret I’m excited about the month of October being so near. There’s a meme floating around the Internet that says something about it being Halloween Season rather than Football Season. I definitely agree with that sentiment. The Sanarae gift from Pixicat is this cute little short sleeved bat print top with the orange leather skirt. The top and skirt can be worn separately as well as together. This FREE gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a few body specific sizes. There isn’t anything I don’t love about this cute outfit. It’s perfect for Halloween Season! All you need to do to get this amazing gift is join the Sanarae group. The group is FREE to join.

Now let’s talk about the octopus kitty floating over Pru’s shoulder. This half octopus half kitty follower pet is just the right mix of cute and creepy. This gacha creature by Katatonik is equipped with resize scripts so you can make her just about whatever size you like. Once you’re  happy with her, the touch menu will also allow you to remove the scripts. There are several versions of the Tendril Kitty from Katatonik at Sanarae, and at 50 lindens per play, it was a gacha I just couldn’t pass up. I may even need to go back to Sanarae and collect a few of the others, they are just that cute! lol

One of my favorite things about Second Life is finding fun flirty clothes that I’d love to wear in real life. And that’s what I found at Clementine, a new-to-me designer. I stumbled on this cool designer through Third Life, a freebies and hunts group in world. This is ‘Alana’ and it’s the free gift for Third Life group members from Clementine. Alana comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL, Fitmesh XS-XL and appliers for SLink, Maitreya and Belleza.  I love the fun this fun look, I think it’s perfect to hit the dance floor in.
